West Central Moves Ahead With Wind Turbine Project

The West Central School Board has voted to move forward with a form of contract with Performance Services for the wind turbine project.  The Board also gave authority to Umbaugh and Associates to proceed with issuing the requests for proposals for the bonds for the wind turbine project from underwriter institutions and local banks.  That should be done by July 10th and the equipment should be ordered.

Superintendent Charles Mellon gave the board a list of wind-damaged items from the recent storm.  Some roof-top air conditioners that cool the computer lab was damaged, along with the football scoreboard and the Elementary School sign.  Seven trees were blown over due to strong winds through the area.  Superintendent Mellon said that no roof damage was indicated.
